At Klamath Early Childhood Development Center, our purpose is to provide an educational foundation that promotes the overall development of children we serve. We encourage learning through play, exploration, and creation. Our primary goal is to provide a variety of safe, stimulating learning environments that promote skill development in approaches to learning, social-emotional skills, language and communication, literacy, mathematics, adaptive skills, and physical development. In addition to helping children, we are here to support families in understanding developmental milestones and to provide support and resources to help children reach those milestones.
Our staff believe all children are unique learners and that each child we serve has great potential to learn. We understand that skills are developed at differing times for each child and that the early years are a critical time for skill development. We want our children, at the youngest of age, to know that they can accomplish many things through continued exploration, effort, and perseverance. We believe that every day is an opportunity for personal growth and that a child's growth is encouraged by establishing high expectations, recognizing and understanding the cultural and linguistic differences among our children, families, and staff, and by working collaboratively to implement high impact learning opportunities across the programs at our center.
About Early Childhood Intervention
Early Childhood Intervention is used to describe the services and supports that are available to babies and young children with developmental delays and disabilities and their families. Supports may include speech therapy, physical therapy, and other types of services based on the needs of the child and family. ECI can have a significant impact on a child’s ability to learn new skills and overcome challenges and can increase success in school and life. Birth to age 3 receive home-based services.
Eligibility for early intervention services is based on an evaluation of your child’s skills and abilities.
If you, your child’s doctor, or other care provider is concerned about your child’s development, ask to be connected with your state or territory’s early intervention program to find out if your child can get services to help. If your doctor is not able to connect you, you can reach out yourself. A doctor’s referral is not necessary.
